“Refused to serve us”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

It was a Friday evening, the restaurant was full of people eating. We arrived at 10pm on the dot after a challenging journey with 2 young children and the woman claimed that the chef had already gone home. We knew she was fobbing us off, hoping to finish early. Having read some of these reviews, maybe McDonalds was a better choice anyway!

“Good place to eat, especially when you're in the Akena hotel next door”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Grilled meat sets the tone, other type of food is also available. Large Salad Bar.

There is an enormous number of different "formulas" promising a combination of different courses at a better price, each with its own set of restrictions. I ended up ordering à la carte, the formulas were too confusing and/or were not applicable for my selections, which were foie gras (average, but a good choice) and fillet steak which arrived cooked the way I had asked for. Be sure to order several servings of the pepper sauce, the portions are tiny ;)

The house wine is okay, other wines by the bottle are reasonably priced.

I left happily and slightly tipsy ;)
